As of Monday 6th July, Colchester United Football in the Community will begin a phased re-opening of Shrub End Community and Sports Centre, and will welcome back to some of our participants to a Safe Return to Play.

Of course, things will be a little different upon our return, and we have made a number of changes and implemented a host of new procedures to ensure that we are safeguarding against COVID-19.

Please read our Safe Return to Play Parents & Players document.

We have also produced a short video, and a map, to illustrate the new procedures for entering and exiting Shrub End for scheduled sessions and training.

It is our utmost priority to ensure that all of our participants are able to continue their training, to socialise with their friends and team-mates, and to have fun — in a safe environment, in which we have taken every precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our complete Risk Assessment document can be read HERE.

There are a number of steps that we have taken to ensure everyone's safety, but there are four key steps that we wish to highlight:
